Pub. Date:
Georgia O'Keeffe's elegant life has the quality of a legend. She was a pioneer who built her own house in the desert; she was a wife to famous photographer Alfred Stieglitz; she was a woman more comfortable living with nature than people. Voted one of the twelve outstanding women along with Eleanor Roosevelt and Helen Keller in the Thirties, she was indeed the timeless beauty whom Vogue looked to in the Sixties.O'Keeffe is the richly detailed biography that illuminates parts of the mystery and intrigue that surround Georgia O'Keeffe. Author and former journalist Hogrefe interviewed her family and friends and, for the very first time, interviewed her heir and companion, Juan Hamilton, who speaks openly about O'Keeffe's last fifteen years. This is not a love letter to Georgia O'Keeffe; it is her true story, documenting her acerbic personality, her unconventional lifestyle, and her struggles as both an artist and a woman.
